Read what clients have shared about their experience with Rolfing and Leah Rachocki CR.
Leah helped me find lasting relief after suffering more than a decade of lower back pain and again after a car accident. She introduced me to the world of Rolfing and has literally impacted my life in ways that I wouldn’t have thought possible.
My Rolfing sessions with Leah were gentle, intuitive, and provided immediate results. And while the sessions themselves have had a profound impact on me, she has also helped me obtain a new level of awareness around posture and movement that will be a part of my daily experience for the rest of my life.
I’d been to chiropractors. I’d been to my doctor. I’d seen a half-dozen massage therapists. They were all great. But none of them changed my life. Leah’s Rolfing sessions are like nothing else I’ve ever experienced, and I whole-heartedly recommend her services to anyone looking to forge a new relationship with their own bodies. – D.H.
I’ve been working with Leah for nearly a year, and I am so grateful to have found her! I’m a 32 year old full-time dancer, and had my first experience with Rolfing over 8 years ago. I’ve seen many different practitioners over the years, and Leah is truly exceptional. She really listens to what my body needs, and always treats both my symptoms and my whole body. She has helped me find freedom, openness and deeper breathing in my ribs, more stability in my pelvis, more length and freedom in my neck-the list goes on and on. I typically see her when I have minor injuries or am really feeling the wear and tear of dancing and pushing myself athletically. I always leave her sessions feeling stronger and more flexible, and ready to go! Leah is also a goldmine of knowledge about the body, so I always take advantage of that and learn a ton from her. She always leaves me with new understanding about how I can maintain the changes in my movement patterns that her work creates. Leah is grounded, compassionate, wise, and a lifelong learner who is always doing research and expanding her knowledge. If you use your body a lot, Leah is an invaluable support! So deeply grateful to her for keeping me moving at my fullest potential with no pain or injuries in sight! ~ J.D.
My chief complaint was pain that ran along my inner left thigh and pain in my left arch. The source of the original complaint was resolved in five sessions. In my experience, the body heals in layers. As one layer heals, another layer that wants to be healed is revealed. This has been an incredible journey – I started out quite bow legged and unmovable through my hip joints. As each new layer is healed, my legs become less and less bowed and my body moves much more fluidly. Before working with Leah, I felt in pain, frustrated, and was unable to run and exercise like I had been doing. I had a fairly broad range of movement but it was stiff and sometimes painful. I worried about how my body would move and feel as I continued to age. Now that Leah and I have worked together, my attitude is – Bring on old age! We are still restructuring my body, but what a world of difference! I feel solid. I feel anchored. I feel connected to my body in a way I have not been connected since childhood. I learned the association of how one part of the body affects another. My arch may hurt but the pain can be originating from farther up my leg like my knee or my hip. -woman in her 40s
I was in an automobile accident a couple of years ago. I healed quickly because Leah is such a talented Rolfer. She was able to free up my diaphragm and the other connective tissue in my torso that “freezes” to protect our internal organs under such shocking physical force. Leah helps the body recover from unexpected physical traumas such as this. My son and daughter use infrequent maintenance sessions to correct anything that needs correcting since their previous session. Life bangs them around a bit from time to time. Leah helps their body heal from the bangs. I know they will age in a much healthier manner because of the Rolfing Leah provides. -woman in her 40s
I hired Leah to help with a herniated disc in my lower back. Before Rolfing with you, my low back hurt to the point of incapacitation. There was never any relief. I couldn’t even carry a 5 gallon bucket of water or pack an armload of firewood. There was a noticable difference after the first session. My back no longer hurt. Last fall I carried loads of moose in excess of 100 lbs over a mile and a quarter to the airstrip. I also run half marathons. My quality of life has improved so much because of Rolfing with you. Everyday is better because of your awesomeness. Thank you! -man in his 40s
Initially, sciatica pain brought me in. I had pain radiating down from my hip down the back of my leg. I also had back pain located in my bra strap area that would wake me up at night. I also had a displaced tailbone that would bother me if I sat for periods of time. The originating pain was relieved after a few sessions. I had an ongoing coccyx pain from a prior injury that I had given up being able to manage. The work with Leah definitely improved my quality of life. My sciatica pain went away, my back pain disappeared and I have the ability to sit for long periods of time without major pain in my coccyx area. Thanks to Leah I learned how to listen to my body for cues and how to deal with those cues on my own. -woman in her 30s
